    The new LG Black, a device that brings tears of joy to my heart, was just pre-announced by Engadget and is being held by LG for their press release this week. The device that many might call an iPhone 4 look alike is far from the title. This phone comes with a description that if released would go something like this:
    “The world of smartphones needs a savior, for ages now we have had phones that are so thick you cannot comfortably carry them around with you. Our new innovation brings together an industry breaking ultra-thin 9.3mm pure aluminum design, that even our closest competitors could not achieve within a year's time. This new multimedia powerhouse doesn’t stop there; it brings to the market our latest and greatest screen technology, able to produce brightness almost 2X higher than the competition; it’s an amazing piece of engineering. We brought you a design when you take out your pocket, you can be proud that you own a sleek and sexy device, but also that you have something that brings out your personality, and this Android is that something."
    What do you say guys? Did we do it again?

    Well this is not the new iPhone, but this is one heck of a phone I’ll tell you that, and I am quite excited to get one myself. The full press release should be out soon, so be on the look out for that.

    doesn't look all that different from a Galaxy S phone. I bet it has a lot better processor, camera, etc. though

    I've been hearing about this phone for a while now. Thanks for the update and looking forward to more details soon. I am a big fan of LG phones, so my feeling is this one will not let me down either.

    The phone looks really nice, I look forward to the specs. Is that a FFC I see?

    (Completely unrelated but in the comment sections disc8's comments are unbearable to read. Upon further investigation I'm beginning to believe he's legitimately obnoxious instead of trolling.)

    My next phone may be a tablet

    All these phones look nice, but having used a few (woeful) tablets in the past few weeks and loving the size (and hating the current mess of tablets), I think my next phone might be my current tethering Android and a new dual processor 7" tablet.

    I think what would be better than a new Android phone would be an old tethering Android phone AND a new Android tablet.

    And if it's a bit bigger and thicker, well, I'll just carry fewer socks around.
